Re: Not able to access BIOS/Power requirement

Thanks! The weird part is, I am not seeing anything when it boots until I see the Windows 10 welcome screen. This is the problem.

So far I have used nothing but an AC adapter to power the LP. Thanks for pointing out I need to use a 5V rail for that. I have one, no problem.

Not able to access BIOS [SOLVED]

My LP seems to be working fine. I have installed Visual Studio, updated the Arduino to the current version, and loaded a number of programs on it. I also went and got a proper key and activated my Windows 10. However, when the boots, I don't see the LattePanda logo, and I cannot get to the BIOS. I w...

Re: Noob Question about Servo controls

Thanks! I double checked my DC/DC power converter, and it can take anything up to 28V and give me one 3.3V rail, which will go to the LP, and then three 5V rails, which will allow me to run the three of my servos on separate rails. [ETA: I trimmed the post and it worked! I did the sweep Arduino sket...

Re: Noob Question about Servo controls

Thanks for the reply! Good idea on the 2x32, but I already have the 2x25. Bought it a long time ago. I have the parts, but the original logic system just didn't work. I agree to try to set up power for the servos separately, especially for the neck servo. Mat Irvine, who built the real prop, has rec...

Noob Question about Servo controls

Hi, My name is Rick, and like I said, I got the LattePanda so I could get back to work on a long-stalled K9 replica from Doctor Who. It's a fan project, not commercial. Here is a link to the project in progress: https://www.flickr.com/photos/rick_r/albums/72157623968412954 https://c1.staticflickr.co...

Re: [DISCUSSION] What do you want to do with LattePanda?

Many years ago, I started a robotics project, a replica of K9 from Doctor Who. I got the skins for it, sound clips, made a frame and most of the necessary pieces. I bought a custom robotics controller chip that sadly only worked once. The guy who made the chip was not very approachable about the thi...
